"Sorry is a question that begs forgiveness, because the metronome of a good heart won't settle until things are set right and true. Sorry doesn't take things back, but it pushes things forward. It bridges the gap. Sorry is a sacrament. It's an offering. A gift.”
― Craig Silvey, "Jasper Jones"
"....because the metronome of a good heart won't settle until things are set right and true..." What a beautiful phrase! It brings to mind sitting each week (every Wednesday afternoon for 9 years!) on the piano bench with Mrs. Loftis. She was always so patient and kind to me, her most wayward student. Sometimes she would wind up the metronome and we would have a jolly time. A good heart does want to keep things in balance - forgiveness, being sorry....forgiveness, being sorry. It's a lifelong lesson. - Beth Almond Ford
